Four ways to dress windows to add character to a room

From crisp linen blinds to sumptuous velvet curtains, the fabrics we choose to dress our windows are key to the character of our rooms, bringing interest, warmth and shade, and framing the view.

Linen Roman Blinds

Above, Ilkley based interior designersSturman and Co used roman blinds made from our Between Certainty and Oblivion linen by artist Joel Weaver to add depth to this beautiful crisp scheme in a converted Yorkshire barn.

Voile curtains to add privacy

In our own bedroom at home we have the slightly naughty 'Body Lace' voile curtains created with artist Sarah Jane Palmer.

This contemporary take on net curtains gives our room privacy whilst also disguising the ugly windows! The voiles allow a beautiful rose tinted light to filter through, adding a delicate softness to the room.

A good tip is to have the curtains on a double track so that you can draw back the voiles as well as the main curtains.

Floor length velvet curtains

For a real statement, floor length curtains in heavy velvet add drama and provide the best heat and light insulation. Above is  How the Leopard got his Spots velvet by Alexis Snell, and below, Rita does Jazz velvet created with Sarah Thornton.

Velvet Roman Blinds

Velvets can also be made into roman blinds. These use far less material and are perfect where space is at a premium, like the How the Leopard got his Spots blinds in in the home office of interior designers Fresh Start Living.
